The violin she is playing was bought for me by my parents in 1957. There is a certificate on the inside stating the date my Dad picked it out. He bought it brand new so that makes it 55 years old.
I have kept in the case all these years. My sis Deb also played in during elementary school. I stopped playing when I took a bad fall, broke my wrist--compound fracture--the doctors put together what they could but my wrist never bent the same again.
All the violin needed was a new bridge and strings. She picked out a new bow and we bought her the PINK CASE.
My Dad passed away 20 years ago but I do know he would be so proud of his great-granddaughter.
There is nothing better than having a legacy, wouldn't you agree?
